The Wentworth gardens were built in the early 18th century and cover over sixteen acres. You will find many old statues, a lush hedge/maze, gorgeous old trees, flowers and plants, and most unexpectedly, a bear pit from 1630 that was part of the architecture of the original Wentworth house and did reputedly house a live bear.
The garden centre is beautiful, with an abundance of varieties. If I lived with England I would gladly make a trip there every spring. They have little shops, crafts, gifts, sweets, garden decor plus a nice cafe. There is also a lovely farm and play area for children (that I did not visit). A full day would not be wasted here!
